Bruce Prichard Reveals Why Billy Gunn Never Got To The Main Event As A Singles Competitor



While Billy Gunn briefly worked as a singles wrestler in WWE, he never made it to the main event scene.

Speaking on a recent edition of his “Something To Wrestle With” podcast, WWE executive Bruce Prichard commented on why the former New Age Outlaws member never made it to the main event as a singles competitor in WWE, his different characters over the years, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On why Billy Gunn didn’t get to the main event in WWE: “If you look at Billy Gunn, my God he’s a Greek god still to this day! He’s got all the tools and can do anything but for whatever reason, when push comes to shove, it’s just not there… I’ll say the same thing about Road Dogg! Dogg was much better as a tag team wrestler and you put those guys together and they made magic together, you take them apart and now part of that illusion is exposed.”

On Gunn’s struggles to find singles success in different characters like his ‘Mr. Ass’ gimmick: “We get Billy Gunn, DX, New Age Outlaws — I thought it fit and it was a good character for him, except I don’t even remember The One.”

On Road Dogg and R-Truth’s chemistry together: “They clicked and they were good together, man, and I think that the opportunity that they had on the music side of things could’ve been off the charts as well.”

On why Road Dogg and R-Truth didn’t work out as a team: “That one perplexed me, because you had charisma out, the yin-yang, and they were good!… I think at that time, they were both probably in their own heads a little too much and that’s probably what did it.”
